First post here...


I'm having an issue on my local data center where we have ten JVMs running a critical application we will call X. X has millions of users a month and thousands of concurrent users a day. If there is an exception our developers are having to trace through ten different massive JVM log files to find the root cause (log files are rotated hourly). We have some monitoring tools in place, but I wanted all of your input on any excellent open source tools that can aggregate log files together?

I welcome any other suggestions.

Hi Joe and welcome to the Ranch!

Are these actual JVM core dump logs? Or application logs that the application developers have configured? If secondary then a somewhat venerable but still useful tool called Chainsaw can help you filter log4j based logs.

These are log4j logs that contain either error or debug info. Excellent, I will check out Chainsaw.
